There are hundreds of types and causes of headaches and Homeopathy is such an effective treatment, especially when your headaches are severe. When you see a Homeopath, the prescription is found after careful investigation of the individual and what is particular about their headache. For example, most migraine sufferers are sensitive to light and noise, which is common, but a particular individual may wake up with a headache, and it slowly dissipates throughout the day, whereas the other notices the migraines around their period. One migraine sufferer may vomit from the pain, and the pain will remain, and another individual may find relief from vomiting.
There are hundreds of possible remedies for the treatment of headaches so the key is finding which homeopathic remedy most closely matches your symptoms. I often find that during the treatment, I use an overall constitutional treatment as a preventative for the headaches returning, and I often provide the patient with an acute remedy to use if they by chance get a headache during constitutional treatment. The constitutional treatment often works within 3 months, and the acute treatment will help within minutes of taking it. Homeopathic treatments are very safe, and effective, and often cures the root cause of the headaches, so the individual sufferer doesn’t have to rely on pain medication anymore.
